I would be interested. I always wear my belt but hate the reminders.markshop said:If there is anyone interested in finding out how to disable the seatbelt light after disabling the chime, post here and i can tell you how to do it safely.
It's pretty easy to disable the "chime", just read it in the user manual but I am not sure how to get rid of the seat belt light. I am very interested in know how to do it.JoeDodge said:I must say the Caliber's seatbelt chime/light is pretty obnoxious; so obnoxious that I put my seatbelt on! I guess that's the point. My other cars were easier to ignore. Maybe I'm in the new vehicle "Yes master, I will obey" mode. Let's see how long that lasts before I beg markshop for instructions on disabling.
OKmarkshop said:Because some people just refuse to wear the belt. And do not like looking at a red light on their dash.
Pretty cool, I had to do that to my 85 Chevy Caprice, even though the belt was on, the stupid light would work.markshop said:Ok for those of you who want to disable the light after disabling the chime per the manual.
On the pillar between the left side doors pull the lower plastic cover off. There is no screws just pull up and kinda peel away from pillar. Then remove the bolt that holds the seatbelt spool in place and on the bottom of the spool there is a black wire connector. Disconnect it and your done. Do not disconnect the top yellow one that is for the airbags. There is also a connector on the pillor do not disconnect that it is also for the airbags.
Do not touch anything under the seat. They are all for the air bags. If you have noticed the light is triggered by the spool not the catch. Pull some belt out and the light goes out. Any other ? just ask.

Are you suicidal?
To me, it's to each his own.superbang said:here here!
i was just talking about this at work with a friend and he said he thinks wearing the seat belt will hinder his safety in certain situations... i was trying to think of some happenstance where a seat belt could somehow hinder your safety... i was hardpressed to think of anything... he's thinking he can just bracehimself enough to avoid injury. i told him he was an idiot for thinking that. he's not spiderman. he doesn't have spidey sense and superhuman strength to brace himself and neither do we. unless of course someone has a radioactive spider in a bitey mood out there... and if so... please send it this way.
always wear your seatbelts please... if not for yourself, than for those who love you.
I was going back a few days on the forum and had to comment on this. I'm not sure of exact numbers, but i remember back in high school (~7 years ago) I had a physics teacher who was mad set on wearing his seat belt. On the board he kept an equation showing G forces associated with certain speed accidents. If I remember correctly a direct hit in the front of a car going only like 30 miles per hour subjects the driver and passengers to over 10 Gs. The average man weighs 170 lbs. Multiply that by 10 and that average man weighing 170 lbs now weighs at least 1700 lbs. I'm not sure, but I doubt many people can stop themselves flying toward the steering wheel if you weigh 1700 lbs.superbang said:here here!
